400th post is a serious one...

This is my 400th post of this blog, after over 55,000 readers and four years. It comes at a time when we have the worst pope in living memory and the "pony and dog show" of a synod put on by the Holy Father himself. Watch this video to understand that we are near the end:

Pray for the Pope.

Synod a circus; Cardinal Burke confirms he's been ousted

His Eminence, Raymond Cardinal Burke, confirms that he has been ousted from his position at the Apostolic Signatura, and says that the Synod was "designed to change Church's teaching..." and that Pope Francis has "done a lot of harm" to the Church (Rorate Caeli). 

The whole synod has been a three-ring circus, with nobody on the same page and the Cardinal who wants to give Holy Communion to everyone making racist remarks. 

For me and all other faithful Catholics who wish to marry in the Catholic Church, it is going to get worse. The evidence is clear: most baptized Catholics (especially ones my age) do not care about the Church. Neither do the Synod Fathers. 

Where I live options for attending a True Mass are scarce, thanks to weak episcopal leadership. You can't even receive confirmation from a resident bishop. 

It doesn't get any more obvious than this: Pope Francis doesn't care about the Church Militant. If and when the discipline on who can receive Holy Communion does change at even the diocesan level and if the parish priest agrees with such provisions, then I won't go to that church. 

I am lucky to be served by a diocesan priest who actually gets it, and his parish is in jeopardy of closing. Even though I (currently) don't attend Mass at an SSPX chapel, people putting-down people who do are part of the problem, not the solution. I understand and acknowledge the work of Archbishop Lefebvre was necessary at the time in order to save the Catholic priesthood. (I don't favor any particular religious order over another, as long as they hold to Catholic Tradition.)

Now to the marriage issue. In retrospect, I believe I had a better chance at finding a Catholic girlfriend during the reign of Benedict XVI. Nobody can figure out why he actually resigned nor if he was forced out by the bogeyman. Unless a miracle happens, I'm still Christendom's most eligible bachelor for a while.

Grandfather gets annulment to enter seminary

An interesting article in the October 3rd issue of the "Catholic" Free Press is another Vatican II novelty. Former Leominster Mayor Stephen Perla, 57, got his marriage annulled by the Diocese of Worcester so he can enter seminary. His projected ordination year will be 2018. Mr. Perla previously worked as the Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese.

Scott Lively for Governor

Rarely you see a candidate for constitutional office these days who puts his trust in HIM. Rarely you'll see someone who has a plan to fight the Devil as Saint Michael (his feast today!) does. Even though he is Protestant, this minister has earned my vote on November 4th. I highly recommend all Massachusetts voters to elect Dr. Scott Lively as our next Governor on Election Day. 

Scott is the only candidate who recognizes that our nation and our Commonwealth were founded on Judeo-Christian principles. He realizes that the two party system isn't working. He is the only candidate who supports ending abortion and same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth. He is also the only one who respects the rights of parents as primary educators and would officially tolerate parents who choose to homeschool or send the kids to another school besides their geographical district. He also supports helping inner-city persons currently on welfare to start businesses.

As a Catholic citizen, I am grateful that Massachusetts has a gubenatorial candidate who supports the Catholic teaching on abortion and homosexuality; AND HE'S NOT EVEN CATHOLIC!!! Baptized Cradle Catholic Martha Coakley has a long rap sheet when it comes to supporting Saint Michael's opponent, and is still allowed to receive the Novus Ordo Cookie courtesy of the Commonwealth's do-nothing bishops. Who knows what Charlie Baker believes. Evan Falchuk and Jeff McCormick are billionaires who are dreamers. 

We are in dark times. I don't care which party you belong to (if at all), but I encourage all Massachusetts voters to choose common sense over corrupt politicians. Please join me in voting for Scott Lively. 

Statement not the responsibility of the candidate nor his committee.

New SSPX U.S. District Superior asks for Novena to Defend the Family

Statement on appointment of new Archbishop of Chicago

Bishop Blaise J. Cupich of Spokane, Washington was appointed the new Archbishop of Chicago this past Saturday. This is not good news. 

Bishop Cupich is very soft on abortion and liturgical abuses. While serving in Rapid City, SD he locked-out the Latin Mass community there from celebrating the Easter Triduum. He also discourages people standing outside abortion clinics praying the Rosary. 

Chicago has more traditional parishes then any other major archdiocese in the United States. They are now in de facto jeopardy with this appointment. Chicago will go back to the Bernadin era shortly.

As one of the largest archdioceses in the USA, the Chicago archbishop does have influence over the whole ecclesial body politic. Since Vatican II the major American archdioceses are the ones with the most unfaithful bishops. This explains why Cardinal Sean in Boston, "Bravo" Cardinal Dolan in NYC, Cardinal Wuerl in DC, Archbishop Chaput in Philadelphia, and Cardinal DiNardo in Houston, all bishops against Sacred Tradition (to name a few), have jobs in their respective places. 

While the Pope is not infallible in appointing bishops, it always seems that the major archdioceses are always bound for a liberal bishop. In order to get a traditionalist bishop we have to stick together and co-sign a letter to the Holy Father personally. 

This brings us to another candidate who was slighted by the Congregation of Bishops: Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Perry. Bishop Perry celebrates Pontifical High Masses and is totally in favor of Sacred Tradition. It is certain that he was slighted for his adherence to Tradition. He better not have been passed because he is an African American.
